I went with Equalizer 4 point WD/ anti sway hitch, about $480.00 with ball. I tow a Rockwood 2702SS with a 1500 Silverado. Dealer supplied a single arm unit that didn't cut it. The Equalizer works very well, hardly any movement, turned the towing from white knuckle to relaxed. Set up is straightforward if you follow directions. I set it up then took it to my RV dealer to torque the two bolts I couldn't do.

Can't say enough about the Andersen WDH. Give them a call or google. Agree that Hensley or ProPride are the number 1 dog in this hurt, however for the money and ease of use don't believe you can beat the Andersen.

"P on TV or trailer" I would have understood.

What's "and trail????" mean in front of "on trailer"??

Did you read what you wrote before you hit "Post?"

Hello Greyson,


I have a 35ft Windjammer with 11% on the tongue. So far I've tried three hitches.


The first was a 10,000 lb Equal-I-zer which I believe is the gold standard for sway control hitches at anything less than $1000. I had it from a previous trailer which was a bit lighter than the Windjammer. It controlled sway fine, but I had a bit of a harsh ride unless I set it up with more than the recommended tilt angle to get enough weight transfer to the front. The answer would have been to switch to a 12,000 version of the same hitch. I was happy with the hitch except for the noise - lots of clunks and groans.


Next I tried an Andersen (my dealer just happened to have one laying around and handed it over for me to try). This is a very interesting design with chains instead of spring bars. It also has integrated sway control. It worked very well. Absolutely no sway. The downside to this design is that it can only transfer a limited amount of weight to the front. I scaled it, and my previous hitch (at the same session) and was only able to transfer 50% of the weight back to the front that had come off due to the tongue weight. The result was bit more vague handling than I was able to achieve with the Equalizer. My brother has the Andersen and he loves it, but he has never compared back to back with anything else.


So I decided the Blue Ox Sway Pro would be my choice. I ordered in a 15,000 version and took that on a trip last weekend. I love it. Very easy to set up and to hook up, and is totally silent. It handles great and no sway, even on the Interstate with 30 mph crosswinds.
It's a keeper and my recommendation to you.


Rick

Ah, "I see" (said the blind man, as he picked up his hammer and saw.)

Mine are called Constancy LY188. No "Trail???"

I used the Reese dual-cam on two of my TT's - a 24' Scotty and a 28' Jayco. I moved up to 1200# bars for the Jayco. NEVER had a problem. No noticeable sway, even when passing / being passed by semi's on the highway. I highly recommend, but there are many ways to outfit a rig. Your choice.
